Jun 9th 2009 1:28PM Okay, the problem isn't no vanilla or no chocolate. The problem is you hand one kid a cone of what they like. Then you hand the next kid a cone. The first kid, WHILE HOLDING THEIR CONE, says 'What about me?'
PVP has been seriously SCREWED since 3.0.0( It's when my kill counter stopped, and I've been raiding ever since.) And it's not about little warrior damage tweaks, or fine-tuning to get the motor sounding right. PVP had its front end smashed, and is sitting up on cinderblocks rusting in a trailer park yard.
Since you don't do vanilla, I'll try to explain what it's like:
It's as if druids, due to avoidance, are the only class that can tank since 3.0.0. And rogues, do 6K DPS while all others have to bust a nut to get over 2K DPS. Imagine if that happened in PVE, and thats how bad PVP is right now.
Now if Blizzard did that to PVE, and then corrected it 5 patches later, would the PVPers have any right in complaining about how much attention PVE side is getting? No.
I do agree its about perception though. The greedy little kid who already got a chocolate cone thinks he's in the right.
Jun 9th 2009 8:30AM This is not simply a graphical change.
When you're at a PVP choke point, with a big pile of bears, it's be nice to know which ones are on your side just by sight. Therefore it is a functional change as well.
And even if the change was only eye-candy in nature, it's still a matter of preference and taste.
Does hometown kid go into an ice-cream parlor and say "I like chocolate. Why are you wasting your time making vanilla?"
May 22nd 2009 9:28AM See, if this were about everyone being "identical" (your term 'equal' kinda sucks) it wouldn't be so bad.
Picture a deathmatch in TF2 with melee weapons, and the soldier gets to keep his rocket launcher, and the Heavy gets to keep Sasha.
That is EXACTLY what is going on in PVP right now, between DKs and Ret Palys.
May 22nd 2009 9:24AM Oh I'm sorry, I actually have to type out the differences between Holy, prot, and ret. My bad, I assumed that you guys KNEW the difference. Clearly an erroneous assumption on my part.
Okay, ret is the only spec that ALREADY generates a disgusting amount of burst damage during those fights, which is why no one has a problem with prot or holy doing it.
Glad we can clear that up.
May 21st 2009 5:52PM "It's come a long way since the launch of the game and 'lolret' is arguably a term now only used in spite and no longer with genuine ridicule. Ridicule and some fear and loathing, maybe, but no longer just ridicule."
Yeah Zach, there is a REASON for this. The only people playing this stupid spec are the ones who need the equivalent of three health bars in order to win a fight.
(Initial health bar, bubble+Heal, and LoH)
In addition to all your other suggestions, shall we send over Cartman's mom so you don't have to get up to take a dump anymore as well?
May 1st 2009 1:13PM I hope they do include them in a cinematic one day.
Either getting punted, or smashed into a pulp by a Tauren with a 2-handed mace.

I just wanted to point out that PETA has no NEED to bring a protest for real life events into a fictional universe.
Mar 26th 2009 3:32PM Yeah. Either Andrew R don't like the ladies at all or has an unhealthy religious drive to cover them up.
While leveling, a lot of my gear made me look like I was about to come pouring out of a small car with 30 other people who looked just like me.
A half-shirt would have been less comedic. Everyone usually ends up with armor they don't necessarily like, for whatever reason.
Put up *AND* shut up.
Mar 20th 2009 4:11PM Okay, the lack of clarification on the first post had a fairly mocking comment from me on how bad the priest bonus was.
I take that all back now.
